Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 02.27.15

Welcome to our latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available. This week’s collection features fourteen videos from British Columbia to Brazil, from Bosnia and Herzegovia to the backcountry of the Rockies.

For best results, watch all videos at full-screen and in high definition. Remember, we surf so you don’t have to. But if you do stumble upon something great that you think is worthy of inclusion in a future F5, please post it in the comments below, and we’ll take a look.

And don’t forget to check out the awesome all-new, improved Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. As of today, there are more than 525 killer videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!

  1. With respect to video fourth from the bottom, the Grey Reef is on the North Platte River, not the cited South Platte.

    1. For what its worth, I lived in my car for just shy of an entire year- the same year I filmed it. Literally. The bummed fisherman has more to reason appreciate. It doesn’t have to be a money thing, my friend.

  2. Hey Phil, great videos& diversity! I also wanted to mention I appreciate the insight on the title of my video (the Nunavut edit) and have changed it after review, as I felt the same. I went in two different directions with it and left the old title without thinking! whoops.
